Stayed here in March 2014 for a week and the hotel itself was actually ok, although it is in a bit of a run down area.
We had a modern room which was clean, warm as we had the radiators on constantly, and the windows thankfully blocked out the noise of the busy road.
Everything in our room worked and there were decent, if not slightly excessive self catering facilities, i.e. pans, pyrex dishes, wine glasses, a caraffe, coffee machine, small dishwasher etc. stuff you probably wouldn't use - yet one very minor let down was that there was no kettle so we had to boil a pan of water for tea.
The room didn't get cleaned all week, which is a bit weird, but not tragic I guess, although a change of towels wouldn't have gone a miss.
As for the area, yes it's a little run down, but t's not the Bronx by any means and I wouldn't say I felt unsafe. We got lost twice trying to find the hotel and both times two locals noticed we were lost and pointed us in the right direction.
The hotel is about a 3- 4 minute walk from the Bobigny Pablo Picasso Metro stop, but doesn't have a sign on the outside, so we walked past it twice!
For anyone going, It's on the opposite side of the carriageway to Hotel Campanile and is the big, new white building on the corner, which could be mistaken or an office block, as the foyer is often full of people sitting around using the wifi, as was the case when we walked past it twice.
When your off out, It's about 20 - 25 mins to central Paris on the Metro dependent on where you are going.
All in all, I was expecting the Hotel of Horrors after reading the reviews, but it was half decent, and ok for the money. We paid £160 for the week which was the cheapest 'ok' looking hotel I saw and I did shop around a fair bit.
